Mayan Bat Falcon

In 800 AD, deep in the present day jungle of Central America, a Bat Falcon sacrifices a Southern Yellow Bat on the peak of a recently abandoned Mayan worship temple. Artist Mike Akins captures this moment in history with his award-winning colorful hand carved bass wood sculpture of a Bat Falcon and Southern Yellow Bat featuring details of moss, orchids, leaves, mushrooms, and a bat skull and bones.
